Synopsis

Few today realize that America's relationship with green technology is far from a recent development. The truth is Americans have been inventing green for more than a century. Powering the Dream tells the fascinating stories of the brilliant, often irascible inventors who foresaw our current energy problems, tried to invent cheap and renewable solutions, and drew the blueprint for a green future.

Alexis Madrigal is a senior editor at The Atlantic, where he launched their Technology Channel, and an award-winning former staff writer for Wired.com. He lives in Washington, DC.
